I love all things RGB. But even I have to admit that RGB fans have too much plastic. It’s not that plastic is all bad, but it makes the component feel cheap in comparison to everything else in the case. Think about it! Nearly every other component has a metallic accent of some kind. As you can imagine, I was incredibly excited to see the news for the Lian Li Bora Digital RGB fans. Continue reading “Finally! RGB Fans with Class – Lian Li Bora Digital”
Noctua is making a bold claim with the new NH-U12A CPU cooler. At a mere 120mm size, this unit can compete with larger 140mm towers. On top of that, Noctua still holds to their epic claims of silent operation. How is this even possible? Can this be true? There’s nothing a little CPU testing can’t show us. Spoiler Alert: Noctua is great when it comes to living up to their claims. We’ll begin soon enough, but first a word from the company. A huge thank you goes to Noctua for providing this sample.

Once in a while, I see a product that feels like designing perfection. Nothing will dethrone my love for the RBT Rebel. However, I’m genuinely impressed with the IronClaw and Glaive from Corsair. The announcement caught my eye, and a further study of each gaming mouse indicated a near perfect design. Why? At some point, certain companies will strip a product from everything unnecessary. What’s left is optimized to the best of usefulness, and a nearly perfect product is born. Continue reading “Corsair Launches IronClaw and Glaive RGB Gaming Mouse”
750W Platinum SFX PSU
Yes, you read that correctly. Somehow, Corsair managed to cram 750 watts into an SFX PSU. Not only that, but the unit is also platinum rated. I got the chance to stumble across numerous SFX units, but the highest I had seen up to that point was 700W with a gold rating. The fact that Corsair pulled off that wattage and efficiency blew my mind. It even manages to have a silent fan mode below 50c. Continue reading “Corsair Announces Most Powerful SFX PSU, CES 2019”
